My son has a 1987 ford ranger with an automatic tranny. The rear end blew, and before I replace it I want to make sure the tranny is not bad. I have the driveline disconnected, and when it goes from drive...


please tell me you are NOT running that transmission with the drive shaft removed ??? Re-install the drive shaft, keep the rear end off the ground and then test it... oh and tell your son to stop with the neutral drops !!!

Cv boot failure


The best thing to do is completely remove the front drive shaft (assuming you are talking about the front CV boots).
1) Jack up the front end of the vehicle.2) Remove front wheel(s), track rod ends and slacken [don't remove completely just yet] the centre hub nut and remove split pin.3) With the gear in neutral, and using an appropriately sized round punch and hammer, punch out the location pin from the drive shaft where the drive shaft meets the gearbox output shafts.4) With the assistance of a flat screwdriver, lever and pull the drive shafts off the gearbox output shafts and let them drop down. 5) Using a rubber mallet, hammer the drive shaft through the front hub. You kept the nut on the end of the shaft initially so as to prevent damage to the drive shaft threads during hammering. This nut will have to be backed off and eventually removed as the shaft slides through and out of the hub unit.
With the entire shaft removed from the vehicle:
1) Cut off or slacken and remove any rubber boot retaining clips.2) slide the rubber boot(s) towards the centre of the shaft.3) Remove the inner joint first by using a small, flat screwdriver to flick out the retaining wire from the inner lip of the joint. (Keep this wire)4) Slide off inner joint cup and clean.
5) Locate the spring clip from the inner end of the shaft and carefully remove without over-stretching. if you have no replacement.
6) Slide off inner C.V. joint, and clean.
7) Remove damaged boot(s), clean all components, re-grease with LM grease and replace.
8) Reinstallation is the opposite of removal steps.


Note: Take care when re-installing drive shaft to gearbox output shaft. This will usually only align to a single position. Before tapping retaining pin back into place, visually inspect alignment of the shaft's holes. You can use your round punch to help align the holes before re-installation of the retaining pin.


Tip: With the removal of the front drive shafts, it may be a good opportunity to also replace front gearbox output oil seals and front wheel bearing-drive shaft dust seals. These are fairly inexpensive and may prolong the life of components as well as reduce the need for repetitive removal of parts.

How do i change 2004 toyota tundra rear end drive shaft


1st, with th E brake on and the wheels chocked. Remove the 4 bolts that connect the shaft to the
rear end flange and pull(or pry if required)away from the rear end. Next pull the shaft back toward the rear off of the front spline. You may have to remove the seal from the from the front of the shaft
at the spline to pull the shaft all the way off. Somtimes the grease on the spline creates a vacum
that makes it tough to remove. When you install the shaft there are marks or notch's on the shaft
and rear end flanges to line up as well as the spline+yoke. But an old rule of thumb is make sure
that the U joints are all in line, so if one shaft is at 12:00 ( I ) the other must be at 12:00 also.
Once the shafts are lined up, line up the marks on the flanges and bolt it up.
Hope this helps.

How do you remove the front drive shaft in a 1999 Chevy 1/2 ton 4X4?


Jack up front end, and put on stands. Remove wheel. Remove large nut on end of drive shaft. Remove lower control arm, from wheel hub bearing assm.
Push drive shaft back toward transmission.
Now that drive shaft is free, you must "pop" it out of transmission output.
You can use a pry bar, but be careful not to damage anything.

Leaking fluid from rear end


hello, fluid leaking out of rear end is probably the pinion shaft seal, its were the drive shaft hooks to the rearend, you have to drop drive shaft, take yoke off rearend, or if it is,more further towards the back,were wheels are, then you need axle shaft seal, you have one on both sides on the rearend, behind the drums, where the back brakes are, also look and see if its coming from back of transmission, where drive shaft goes into the transmission, see if you can tell what color fluid is, if its red, its probably rear transmission seal, where drive shaft goes into the transmission.

just remove the 4 15mm bolts that hold the sway bar to the frame and it will lower enough that will get it out no problem at all
